My dad got me this car when I was 17. It was truly a bargain at $3300. Even though it had 91000 miles, it still runs great. The only problem was that a window did not work. But that isn't too bad. The power isn't great with only 125hp but it uses high revs to maintain better acceleration. It is great with gas and also very reliable. A year ago, my dad brought a 04 camry. It is crazy how much it didn't change since my 96 camry. If you are looking for a cheap car, make sure you get one that lasts. And I believe the camry fits this description.
High revs, spacious interior, and decent pickup. Also, I like the rear view of the car. Easy maintenance.
Instead of plastic painted rims, they should have used alloy. My dashboard is starting to fade (still great for a ten year old car).
I bought my Camry 8 years ago, used. I fell in love with it right off. It's so comfortable to drive! I never have to worry about mechanical problems, which is a blessing! Every time I think about buying a new car, I test drive a few, but in the end, I can't even think about giving up my pretty little Camry!
